CEMATEX to provide grants to ITMA 2015 participants at Research & Education Pavilion
CEMATEX, the European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers will provide a grant to all participants of the Research & Education Pavilion at ITMA 2015 (November 12 -19) at Fiera Rho in Milan, Italy
Charles Beauduin, President of CEMATEX states: “Investments in R&D, as well as education and training, are extremely important if the textile and garment industry is to stay ahead of the technology curve. Due to strong response and positive feedback following our initiative at ITMA 2012 in Barcelona (E), we have decided to continue to provide the grant to pavilion participants at ITMA 2015, and we are inviting even more institutions to leverage on the ITMA platform to showcase their projects, capabilities and programmes. These institutions will be able to enjoy discounts of at least 50 % of their booth cost”.
ITV, the Institute of Textile Technology and Process Engineering, Denkendorf (D), is among the first to support ITMA 2015. ITV director, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Götz T. Gresser, explains: “As Europe’s leading and largest textile research centre and research projects that span across the entire textile production and supply chain, we see the synergy to collaborate with ITMA 2015 as the ideal platform to network and showcase our complete spectrum of textile research and services. OITMA attracts a great number of leading industry players from all sectors.”
The R&E Pavilion at ITMA 2015 will continue to provide outstanding opportunities to research organisations and higher learning institutions to share their R&D achievements, as well as current and future projects with the industry. In addition it will feature a Speakers Platform for participating institutes to share their latest knowledge and projects, the knowledge exchange hub@ITMA 2015.
Professor Kunihiro Hamada, Dean of Shinshu University (J), Faculty of Textile Science and Technology, states: “We applaud ITMA’s continuous focus on research, education and training to ensure the sustainable development of the textile and garment industry. We participated in the ITMA 2011 Speakers Platform which provided us with a unique opportunity to engage with the industry members, and we look forward to participating again at ITMA 2015”.
A technical committee is being formed to select presentations for the Speakers Platform. More details are to follow. Applications can be made at the link below, both for the Speakers Platform and for grants.
